Dream Catcher 43

Literary Arts Magazine featuring poetry, prose, reviews and the art of Beth Ross

Description

One again we are struck by the variety of submissions, and their geographical reach – from Denmark to Texas, from Midlothian and Mull to Cardiff, via Bangor and Devon (there’s a challenge for the new Railway consortium). The pandemic still rumbles on, but was less evidently a prompt for writing, though we do have an account on how to reskill in a dystopian present, as well as insights from pre-history. Apparently, after fifteen months of non-tactile communication, we are awaiting a summer of love, which presents itself in some of its guises, awkward/young, cross-species (anyone else for a fumble with a seahorse?), maternal. There are also guest appearances from some ghosts; women as viewed by artists; and the familiar smattering of beaches, birds, trees and myths from various corners of the world.
This month’s artist is Beth Ross whose paintings are a riff on colour and memory, motherhood and travel, all underpinned with splintering geometry.
